The Vermont Fresh Network (VFN) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit membership-based organization founded in 1996 with the mission of advancing relationships among farmers, chefs, and consumers to grow markets and eat more locally grown food. VFN is dedicated to a flourishing local food system for the benefit of our environment, our communities, our health, and the overall strength of the rural economy.
They approach this work through connections between farmers and chefs. Chefs and other culinary professionals play a key role in shaping our daily food lives and they present unique market opportunities for Vermont food producers. They are the primary statewide organization representing this perspective in local food work. VFN also offer consumer education, and professional development programs throughout the year that are open to everyone.
